I'm Michele, and I live in Como - Italy (and no! I never met mr. Clooney!)
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Well... I think ET research is not a work, it's a state of mind: how is it possible not to believe in others kinds of life living far away from us?
The problem is to contact them, and here it comes SETI@home! (the other problem is to meet them, but that's another question ;-)
